Oh, dahling, you look ten years younger. What have you done to your beard?

I mean, three years ago, it was straggly and grey, and now it’s thick and black and straight and well trimmed. Who’s your hairdresser? Did he use hot oil treatment or just L’Oreal and a good conditioner?
And where are all those wrinkles? Did you get a face lift, or just a small Botox job? Your complexion is clear now. Tell me: who does your facial? And is he cute?

The “new” Osama looks a lot younger and fatter than before, his wrinkles are gone, and he sports a full black beard let’s compare left 2004 with right 2007.(from GatewayPundit)

None of this makes sense, unless Osama had a plastic surgery.

Some on the internet are doing side by side comparisons, and they sure look….strange. Where did his undereye bags go? The change in beard color could be hair dye, which has been used by other jihadi leaders.

Bin Laden’s beard appears to have been dyed, a popular practice among Arab leaders, said Rita Katz, director of the SITE Institute, a Washington-based group that monitors terror messages.

But what about the shape of the beard on the face, the mustache, and the upper eyelid length? Is it Osama, or is it a double?
Presumably someone has better photos and has noticed the same thing.

Indeed CQ BLOG notes that an ABC News blog  suggests the beard is fake:

“It does look oddly like he is wearing a false beard,” Richard Clarke, a former White House counterterrorism official and now ABC News consultant, said. “If we go back to the tape three years, he had a very white beard. This looks like a phony beard that has been passed on.”

The “phony beard” may be an important clue as to where bin Laden is hiding, according to Clarke.

“One place where a beard would stand out would be southeast Asia, the Philippines, Indonesia,” Clarke told ABC News. “No one’s thought he was there, but that is an environment where most men, Muslim men don’t have beards.”

Oh great. He might be in Makati. Since all the hairdressers here are gay, maybe we should ask the Reyes hair salon guys (no relation) to keep a look out for him…hmm. Does BryanBoy know another international lover of fashion and male beauty is in town?
